The All-Encompassing Glory of Castelia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Adalbert Corvinius with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 10.993 billion Castelians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Castelia City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,352 trillion mordons a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 304,935 mordons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Eagle', card collectors duel to the death, muggers are complimented on their enterprising spirit, and foragers descend on national cemeteries for 'all-you-can-dig-up' extravaganzas. Crime is totally unknown. Castelia's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The High Church of Castelia.

Castelia is ranked 2,934th in the world and 4th in Azure Watester Federation for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 671.43 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
